Groove On The Wireless 228

Dr. Groove surprised himself by getting this show together, albeit late again, but none the less it is here, to be inputted into your head whenever.

The show has one of the great rock songs, and possibly the greatest intro to a song, ever! What am I talking about?  Thin Lizzy and Chinatown, obviously.

Apart from that – the show of two halves – give a ball and a yard of grass, goes in a different direction, as we ease down into 70’s funkiness – and finally finish up with this great gentleman, Robert Wyatt.   Do yourself a favour and listen to the last song in a mindful space.


Dr. G


  1. Lee Scratch Perry – City is too hot
  2. Robert Jay  – Alcohol (Pt. 1)
  3. Dr. Feelgood – Milk and Alchohol
  4. Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band – Run Paint, Run Run
  5. ZZ Top – La Grange
  6. Thin Lizzy –  Chinatown
  7. Idris Muhammad – Piece of mind
  8. Billy Cobham – Red Baron
  9. Massive Attack – karma coma (Portishead Remix)
  10. Autechre – Foil
  11. Robert Wyatt – At Last I am Free

GrooveOnTheWireless#31 Commenced in a flurry of nigh on uninterpretable Irish(Gaeilge), the Doctor is in session. Desperately seeking better weather, like less hail in May, the operation is a sun dance.   More akin to a witch doctor he attempts to conjure up better weather by resorting to the beauty of disco, with a Ben Pearce reworking of the classic Quincy Jones track ‘Betcha wouldn’t hurt me’ and we take it from there.

Track List

  • Ben Pearce –  Patticakes  featured on (annie-mac-presents)
  • People’s Choice  – Do it any way you wanna
  • Jack De Mello –Hawaiian Guitar Music
  • Air – “La femme d’argent”
  • Michel Cleis – La Mexcla [Edit]
  • Sun Palace – Rude Movements
  • Linda & Richard Thompson – Beat the Retreat
  • The Beech Boys – ‘Til I Die
  • King Tubby – Buckshot Dub
  • Janelle Monáe – Mushrooms & Roses

This Show Totally Garage Rocks Numero 34

This Show Totally Rocks Numero 34 16th May

This week starts off a bit garage with a bit of Female Hercules in honour of Reynald’s posthumous birthday celebrations which are happening tonight.  And then the garage just kind of took hold of me (well that and the Bavaria) so it was on to a bit of The Ty Segall Band and then the Moonhearts (who’s only album is produced by Ty Segall and is bassed by Mikal Cronin) so it was a no brainer to stick a Pink Floyd cover  off Ty and Mikal’s colaborative album into the mix.  That one went pretty far out into the weirdo-sphere so I brought it back with a bit of The White Wires and a bit of Belgium’s contribution to the 77 scene, The Kids.  A weird one came up next as I’m not terribly au fait with X, but this track is solid.  The drums melted straight into the Jesus Lizard which put me into a ‘shit hot live band’ mood.  Cue past local heroes, The Things and Bambi.  So all hyped up on local music, I was reminded of the two scumbags that knocked Philo’s statue over during the week so I played a bit of Thin Lizzy and kept it rockin with a bit of Drunk horse.  At this point I had had enough of songs more than a minute and a half long and stuck on a bit of Low Culture and The Mind Spiders (who both feature former members of The Marked Men) Then the Bavaria took over again (well that and the garage). Cococoma, The Jacuzzi Boys , Jaill and Red Mass rounded things off.  Fuck yeah, let’s garage!!!
